Azealia Banks‘ 1991 EP has yet to arrive (it’s due out by the end of May), but the up-and-comer has already unveiled “Jumanji”, a new track from her forthcoming mixtape Fantastic (out this summer). Both of these releases will precede the 20-year-old Harlem rapstress’ full-length album Broke With Expensive Taste (dropping in September). With so many projects lined up — but not yet in her fans’ hands — perhaps it’s now more clear why Banks nixed the majority of her previously-scheduled festival dates in June, July and August.
So now that you’ve got all that squared away, go have a listen to “Jumanji” below.
Banks declares that she’s a “real bitch all day, uptown, Broadway” on “Jumanji”, which was produced by Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook. It’s definitely mixtape material, though the song has enough sassy flourishes to keep us interested in what Azealia has to come.
Are you feeling her playful tune “Jumanji”?
